Hyundai Ioniq

The Hyundai Ioniq is a compact five-door liftback manufactured and marketed by Hyundai, made in hybrid, PHEV, or electric car model versions. The nameplate Ioniq is a portmanteau of ion and unique. It is marketed as the first automobile to be offered without a standard internal combustion engine but rather sold in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and all-electric variants. Following its discontinuation in South Korea in 2021, production of the Ioniq ended in July 2022 in favor of an electric battery lineup of Ioniq-badged models starting from the Ioniq 5 crossover with Ioniq 6 and Ioniq 7 to follow.

The hybrid version of Ioniq

The Ioniq is Hyundai’s first automobile built from the ground up and is specifically available as a hybrid or electric powered. It is related to the Kia Niro crossover utility vehicle and Hyundai Elantra, with which it shares a wheelbase and suspension components.

The Ioniq Hybrid was released in South Korea in February 2016.[9] The hybrid was launched in Malaysia in November 2016. Two Ioniq Hybrid trims were available, HEV and HEV Plus.[18] The Ioniq Hybrid was introduced in the United States for the 2017 model year in early 2017, with journalists granted early access in February. Production of the Ioniq Hybrid halted in July 2022.

Versions of Hyundai Ioniq

The lineup starts with the IONIQ 5, launching later this year as a compact SUV that combines good looks, plenty of space, and unparalleled eco credentials. This will be followed by the IONIQ 6, a sedan scheduled to launch in 2022, and the IONIQ 7, a large-size SUV due to launch in 2024.
